The owners of the popular Butt of Sherry pub, Enterprise Inns, have placed it on the market. Locals are opposed to this and are keen to keep it open as a public house that serves both Mere and passing trade. If it closes, it is almost certainly going be developed into housing.
An application is being submitted to make it an Asset of Community Value and a Facebook Group called The Butt of Sherry Preservation Society has been formed. A steering group is being convened to decide how best to proceed.
Mere Chamber of Trade works to promote businesses in the area and supports keeping this business running as the popular public house that it is.
